Live Chat Brings Much-Needed Speed to Technical Support

Guest Post by Chris Childers, from Velaro Live Chat Soft­ware. As this blog recently shared via info­graphic, a speedy res­o­lu­tion in multi-channel cus­tomer ser­vice is arguably the most impact­ful fac­tor in cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion (a stag­ger­ing 65% of cus­tomer com­plaints per­tain to slow issue res­o­lu­tion times!).

Soft Skills Remain Critical for Tech Support Professionals

My good friend, Mike, owns a BMW R80/7 motor­cy­cle and recently needed some repairs. “Last time I took it to ‘XYZ Cycle Ser­vice’, but I just can’t get myself to go back there,” he groaned. “They’re sup­pos­edly the best in town, but they were down­right rude.

Creating Customer Personas to Better Understand the Customer Journey

We write a lot about what it takes for com­pa­nies to deliver excep­tional cus­tomer expe­ri­ences. We advo­cate for robust train­ing that is rel­e­vant and ongo­ing, for seam­lessly inte­grat­ing omni-channel ser­vices, for mon­i­tor­ing impor­tant KPIs, and, of course, for know­ing who your cus­tomers are and their expec­ta­tions when inter­act­ing with your self-service fea­tures and/or con­tact center […]

Real Time Performance Management Systems for the Contact Center

Do you remem­ber the Obama/McCain pres­i­den­tial cam­paign of 2008? Obama pre­sented him­self as the can­di­date who was for­ward look­ing and cast McCain as the can­di­date who rep­re­sented the past. This future/past dichotomy is actu­ally one we see in con­tact cen­ters in how data is col­lected, ana­lyzed and syn­the­sized. Many soft­ware sys­tems that are used by […]
